Small update and other pics

September is a great month to reflect on summer's success...

trachy in Mar 2011

trachy now (fence is 6' high)

nice size trunking yucca I saw while in Texas. This is just North of Arlington.

Back to my yard...my yucca recurvifolia gave a spurt after some much needed rain last week and is now flowering. First time to flower.

The hibiscus had a banner year. Flowers are so large.

I've been wanting to get into macro photography but can't put out $500+ for a lends right now. I did find one for the iPhone that's only $70. These are all without a tripod, which I now need.

Inside the hibiscus shown above.


Had fun photographing this jumping spider. He made a lunge at the phone but didn't win. :)

Inside a begonia.

A close up of crape myrtle flowers.

Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoyed.

Pretty cool macros for an Iphone! That phone has some amazing photo capabilities. Love the hibiscus macro, very nice.

Thanks! The warm winter of 2011 helped with growth this summer. Let's hope for a 2012 repeat. :)
